Notes on a confirmation hearing.
The shade tree mechanics at Blaska Policy Werkes pulled Ol’ Sparky out of the garden shed and with a little elbow grease and some actual petroleum grease got the Eisenhower-era mainframe computer purring like a ’54 Hudson Hornet straight six.
We asked the mechanical marvel to identity the most annoying Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Before throwing a rod at 4500 rpms, Sparky spit out the following list:
- Maisie Hirono of Hawaii asking if Amy Coney Barrett ever sexually assaulted anyone. (“No complaints,” would be Blaska’s answer, but let’s move on.) Our best theory is that TV doesn’t get all the way from Washington D.C. to Honolulu so the good folks in the Aloha State are blissfully ignorant of what they have inflicted on America.
- Sheldon Whitehouse spinning Beautiful Mind conspiracy charts, missing only the demented professor’s criss-crossing strings. (We remember how the Rhode Island senator took a microscope to Brett Kavanaugh’s high school year book.) (“Sheldon Whitehouse’s funhouse math.”)
- Richard Blumenthal for lying about a Coney Barrett dissent. (More here.) Then again, he lied about serving in Vietnam.
- The always unctuous Cory Booker asking if the nominee, adoptive mother of two black children from Haiti, was racist.
- Kamala Harris, on general principle.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Desperation is never pretty.
Yes, this does indeed smack of desperation. I have been quite impressed with her so far and think that she is a good pick. I’d rather have a woman of faith on the bench than someone who doesn’t believe in God at all. Plus, she’s a mother. And brilliant. And composed.

All true of course but most importantly she is a helluva lot more attractive than RBG!
Let us pray…
Ha ha. I was going to say that but that’s sexist you pig!
Another occasion to bring out the inveterate liars of the Democratic Party. For example, yesterday I received the latest missive from Demand Progress.
It starts out:
“This morning Senator Dianne Feinstein warmly greeted Donald Trump’s extremist nominee for the Supreme Court—ignoring the majority of the American people who want this confirmation process to wait until the next president is sworn in.1”
Hmm, that claim seems a bit surprising. So I check out the link for this assertion. It pulls up a report from Vox entitled “‘This is not normal’: Cory Booker Calls Out Republicans Rushing Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court Hearing.” I read this report 3 times and STILL can’t find anything substantiating the claim that “the majority of the American people who want this confirmation process to wait.” If anyone else can find something in this link which substantiates that claim, I’m interested in seeing where it is. Maybe it’s buried somewhere in the accompanying 12 minute video where Booker makes this claim. I did not watch that, given the errant nonsense he was being quoted in the printed version. https://www.vox.com/2020/10/12/21513061/cory-booker-amy-coney-barrett-hearing
Given past experience with these missives, I actually wonder why these folks even bother to link to an article in the first place. In several other similar with these coming from other Democrat fund-raising efforts, I’ve clicked on a footnote regarding a statement of fact and just been directed to a page asking exactly how much I wanted to contribute to the candidate/ DNC coffers.
But you know, it’s all for a good cause. We MUST save this nation from a man whom Noam Chomsky, whose writings I have taken very seriously before he has become apparently senile in his old age, “is the worst criminal in human history, undeniably.” https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/06/23/noam-chomsky-trump-is-the-worst-criminal-in-human-history/
got the Eisenhower-era mainframe computer purring like a ’54 Hudson Hornet straight six.
Last week, DWD would have bought that from you for a ridiculous price. THIS week, it comes out that there are no “computer problems” at DWD, because their proposed budget includes zero dollars for “computers.”
You fired up the mainframe a week late!
Whom did Ol’ Sparky leave off the list? Sen. Amy Klobcshar, for being a general all-around c-word. One example: using her question time to stoke fears of what the Supreme Court might to to the ACA. Of course, she was only reading from the Democrat script–a ploy so obvious (and tedious) that even the dimmest viewer could see through it. Then again, in the absence of false charges of sexual abuse, it’s the only thing Dems have.

I was utterly perplexed and confused by Maisie Hirono’s line of questioning. I mean whenever I hear that Senator talk I can only think of idiotic comments during the run up to the Kavanuagh hearing. Her staff, must have printed the wrong set of questions for her for her to regurgitate during the hearing. I also like when ACG asked Amy Klobuchar for the definition of “super precedent”, you could just see Klobuchar brain freeze up and you could clearly see on her face she had no answer to that pertinent question. ACB knew she had her beat as soon as the question came and out and she shut her down with a smile on her face. It was like watching Ms. Vicki go toe to toe during vaping hearing, Rashida Tlaib. Tlaib knew she was beat after her idiotic conspiracy line of questioning. Confirm her today!

Don’t bet that the Democrat Machine won’t pay off another perjurer like they did Blowsey-Ford.
May I repeat Senator Kamala Harris, on principle?
Dave, You are killing me. You are funny, sarcastic and oh so right!
Agreed Ruth, which is why reading Dave’s blog is so addictive. I hope everyone really
appreciates what they are getting here for free. VERY few people out there have
Blaska’s talent as an incisive thinker with this kind of verbal wit.
Even if you don’t care about politics or even Madison, but just like the English language, I don’t see how anyone -SJWs aside – can fail to appreciate this blog.
Can you imagine Dave teaching failing high school kids how to think and write? I can…….hint……hint…..
Not to change topic but why not one news source in Madison let us know about the 5 weapon violations last week? Sataya influence possible? After all it’s one of america’s favorite cities to bike. Just not after dark on any bike trail.
And, why did yahoo stop the commenting on their news web site? What do you think? Doesn’t fit their narrative, so they canceled like CNN did in 2016. Lol.
